These are the smallest speakers I’ve ever seen/used/owned. The X-mini ME speaker is as small as your thumb, which is pretty remarkable–it’s the first speaker of this size to be available in the market. This is awesome because I’ve had my speakers for years and they were hardly portable. It was bulky and heavy, and included a huge adaptor plug and long wires that always got tangled up. They were such a pain to bring around, but I lugged them around whenever I would travel anyway. You see, I am one of those people who needs something familiar in order to feel at home in a new place. And for me, that familiar thing is music. It relaxes me, and makes a brand new place feel like an extension of my home. I would use my earphones and listen from my phone, but I really prefer speakers. I mean, you can’t use your earphones when you’re in the shower or when you’re changing clothes. I need speakers to be able to play my favorite songs and make me forget I am all alone in an unfamiliar room, in a foreign place (work sometimes requires me to travel, which I love, but I am usually alone on these trips). Of course, there were times when I got lucky and found built-in speakers in my room, but that didn’t happen very often so I made sure to bring my speakers to all my travels.
That’s all in the past now. I have the X-mini ME now, and life is good. Its size is such a win for me! It can easily attach to your keychain and mobile phone so you don’t actually have to pack it in your luggage. You can carry it with you anywhere, and it is so lightweight that you’ll forget you have it in your bag until you have to use it. Oh and don’t let its cute-ness fool you. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill toy/accessory/keychain. These speakers are pretty loud and can hold its own to virtually any music. It doesn’t have a small, tin-like sound, like other teeny-tiny speakers. Its bass is decent and sound quality is quite clear. I tried blasting the volume and it didn’t sound terrible, nor did it break. It delivered sound well, in my opinion, and is perfect for hotel rooms and empty beaches. Of course, don’t expect it be concerto-quality, because it isn’t. It’s a good speaker for its size though, and its size and portability cannot be matched. I have to commend them for their design as well–these are total conversation-starters!
I chose mine in hot pink and bright yellow, just so I don’t lose them or leave them behind. Small things tend to get left behind, especially when they blend in with their environment (anything black disappears in my purse). But thats just a personal choice–these also come in aqua blue and black, which are also great colors. It offers an impressive playback time of 6 hours using Micro-USB charging, and it is compatible with all your devices (Smartphones, tablets, laptops and portable game players). It’s SRP is only P999, which makes this such a good buy! 🙂
